When the Devil Drives

'“The elements that have attracted readers to Brookmyre since his early efforts are abundantly present in his latest work: complex plots, deep examinations into those dark aspects of the human personality and psyche that are simultaneously fascinating and repellent, and, at the core, a puzzling and intelligent mystery or two. It is difficult to imagine what more one could ask for.” —BookReporter “Brookmyre is a master at rendering ingenious, intertwining plots. Sharply drawn characters and an idyllic Scottish setting add further appeal to this engaging entry in which foul play’s the thing.” —Booklist (starred review) “When the Devil Drives is a true pleasure for all detective fiction fans—think Ian Rankin by way of Agatha Christie, by turns dark and delightful and always intriguing. Christopher Brookmyre’s strong prose and clever dialogue deliver on every page of this intricately plotted thriller, and I look forward to seeing what he does next.” —Michael Koryta, winner of the Los Angeles Times Book Prize and New York Times–bestselling author of The Prophet “When the Devil Drives is an engaging, well-written, Scottish-based crime thriller. . . . there is no disguising Brookmyre’s prose.” —The Herald (Glasgow) “Brookmyre paints the workmanlike nature of private investigating with veracity and insight. . . . yet another accomplished, engaging, smart, and funny piece of crime writing, plotted and executed with no small amount of skill, style, and craft.” —The Scotsman “Invigoratingly complex . . . cripplingly infectious.” —Daily Mirror “Brookmyre at his chaotic, brilliant best.” —Daily Record “Deftly plotted and believably characterized as ever, with a pleasing anti-establishment edge.” —Marylebone Journal'
